Bunker fuel metering systems

Maximum transparency and reliability with certified solutions for bunker fuel measurement

Every single day, bunker oil is pumped into the fuel tanks of tanker, cargo, bulk carrier and fishing ships. The traditional quantity measurement via tank gauging, for example, can be associated with a great amount of uncertainty due to error-prone volume to mass calculation, as well as not considered air content caused by tank stripping and the “cappuccino effect.” Our solution of bunker fuel metering systems prevent from measurement inaccuracies during this process, no matter how small.

Transparency for greatest confidence

Our bunker fuel metering system is based upon the tried-and-tested Coriolis mass measurement, which has been used successfully in custody transfer applications in the oil and gas industry for decades. It eliminates problems with traditional measurements and ensures maximum transparency during the bunker procedure. This system, developed and patented by application specialists, ensures that air pockets are included correctly in the measurement when emptying tanks.

Benefits

  • Confidence and profitability at the same time guaranteed thanks to accurate and indisputable billing of the supplied bunker fuel quantity

  • Increased transparency by monitoring simultaneously multiple process parameters during the entire fueling process and detecting air pockets, as well as potential "cappuccino effects" that occur when stripping tanks

  • Higher and sustainable efficiency with shorter idle times thanks to accurate direct mass measurement without converting volume

  • Unlimited security with a measuring system certified in accordance with MID (MI-005) and recognized for commercial use by the Maritime Port Authority (MPA) of Singapore

  • Time-saving because of simple operation and optimal control with an easy-to-understand control panel for tracking important parameters directly, or print them out at any time for consulting as evidence in case of ambiguities
